I found out about Ergogenics through Instagram around month ago. What drew me to Ergogenics was that they are a local British Columbia based company, and they make plant-based protein powders! Not only do they make protein powders, they also make whole plant-based greens, and that’s what I used today.
Anyone that knows me, knows that I have issues with textures in my food and drinks. I have tried many different types and brands of Greens. The Ergogenics Organic Whole Greens wasn’t gritty or slimy. It has a smooth texture and doesn’t have any extra flavors added. They are available in either a powder form or in capsules. Check out your options HERE.
Ergogenics Organic Whole Greens has 4 – 5 servings of vegetables in one serving! It contains algae, green vegetables, matcha, cereal grasses and legumes. It is gluten free, soy free, dairy free, sugar free and it’s vegan. Just this alone made me very excited to try it. I was not dissapointed and this will become a staple at my house!
My recipe that I am sharing with you has so much flavor and is very simple to make! For the Garden Hummus, I used Ergogenics Organic Whole Greens powder. It adds an extra boost of flavor to it, plus you know you will for sure get your vegetable intake for the day! I know that a lot of people suffer from allergies, so I made this hummus without tahini in it. The herbs give it so much flavor that you don’t even notice that it’s not in there. It is sugar free, gluten free, soy free, nut free and vegan! If you like your hummus a bit runnier, add more olive oil in it OR half an avocado!
